The June auction from Youhorse.auctionenters history as an extremely successful start of the summer season. The strong collection raised a lot of interest, which translated into bids from all over the world. The Vigo d’Arsouilles daughter Jelka ruled supreme. For 60,000 euro she will move to Canada. 

A content Mario Everse says: “We had a real good auction. We are extremely pleased about that for it was a special achievement in the current, competitive auction landscape. Also this time we had lots again to suit every purse and many of the horses got sold. Auctions are always exciting and at the last moment there were new bidders.”

The highest price, namely 60,000 euro, was paid by Canadian buyers for Jelka. This 9-yr-old mare combines the popular blood from Vigo d’Arsouilles and Heartbreaker and is a half-sister to Lorenzo de Luca’s 1.55m Grand Prix horse Homer de Reve. That proven genes will always be appreciated was confirmed again by Golden Chaco. There was a winning bid of 50,000 euro for the 8-yr-old son of Eldorado van de Zeshoek and Chacco Blue. This gelding was almost on his way to Chile, but at the last moment German buyers snapped him up. 

USA loves to invest
Chile was, however, successful in the fight for the 5-yr-old French Fernando. This gelding is sired by For Pleasure out of the full sister to Cornet Obolensky. South America was also very active at this auction. Early on in the auction, Ecuador claimed the 3-yr-old Parel de Muze (I’m Special de Muze x Vingino) for 36,000 euro, later followed by sales to Uruguay and the Dominican Republic. 

Three horses will perform under the Mexican flag, such as the 3-yr-old Espage (Emerald van ’t Ruytershof x Lux Z) for 20,000 euro. The USA purchased eight horses. The two 5-yr-old mares Coco (Obos Quality 004 x Benbulbin) and Next Generation VK (Falaise de Muze x Indoctro) went for 24,000 euro and 22,000 euro, respectively. 

Next auction on 4 July
There is no resting on its laurels for the organization, that has to prepare for the next instalment of the series. Mario Everse: “We are happy to move on and are looking forward to the next auction on 4 July. We hope to again offer a great group of horses under saddle and loose jumping talents. The collection will be selected on on 12 and 13 June in Waddinxveen. People with a remarkable talent in their stables can enter him or her here”, Mario Everse concludes.
